The Integrated Leader’s Guide to Freedom & Flow
If it feels like you are often spinning your wheels and running close to empty at work (and the rest of your life for that matter), don’t despair.
The trouble is, when you don’t realize what is really happening, you’ll tend to lean on the accelerator without realizing you are also pushing hard on the brake. And though you may be getting decent results, they’ll come at the cost of quickly depleting your energy and leaving you feeling overwhelmed, stretched thin, under pressure, and even on the verge of burnout. It becomes harder and harder to get things done, access your creativity and inner wisdom, connect with others and enjoy your work.
But it doesn’t have to be like that.
In fact, quite the contrary — you can access a state of flow where you’ll get the traction you need to make a bigger impact in a way that fills you up instead of sucking the life out of you.
I know this, because I have experienced it myself. I’ve spent much my life in the grip of an overachiever syndrome, compelled to excel at everything I did and habitually taking on way more than I could handle — working myself into a frenzy that often had me collapsing in exhaustion.
I’ve also spent many years learning and practicing strategies that have allowed me to find a better way of working and living. From a very early age I was drawn to learning about personal and spiritual development, psychology, mindfulness, stress management, meditation, neurobiology, transformation, creativity, communication and human relationships. I devoured books, watched lectures, sought mentors, and attended workshops and group sessions on these topics.
And I’ve not only applied what I’ve learned in my own life, but as an executive coach and leadership development/organization effectiveness consultant I’ve worked with hundreds of leaders and executives over the last twenty years to help them apply these principles with great success. As a result they were able to do more than they thought possible while enjoying harmony in their lives, allow their work to feed them rather than deplete them, and move from a state of desperation and pressure into one of passion and flow.
My book, The Pinocchio Principle: Becoming a Real Leader, was written in an effort to share what I have learned both in my personal and professional life. And now I am piloting an online course, The Integrated Leader’s Guide to Finding Your Flow, designed to help people directly apply these concepts, frameworks, tools and methodologies in their own lives in a meaningful and practical way.
The Integrated Leader’s Guide to Finding Your Flow is a four week online training and leadership development coaching program whose goal is to help you access this optimal state where you can think more clearly, get more done in less time, make better decisions, perform at your best and feel a sense of satisfaction and fulfillment with your work and life overall. You will learn to recognize when you are getting in your own way and take steps to reverse the cycle that leads you to feel overwhelmed, anxious, pressured, and out of touch with your best self.
What does the program include?
As part of this program, which closes for registration on Friday April 29, you’ll receive:
Four weeks of online training, from Monday 5/2 through Thursday 5/26/16. Each week will include a one hour live webinar, on Mondays from 11:30am to 12:30pm, which will be recorded and made available for replay. ($2,000 value)
Week One will introduce you to the Personal Power Grid and help you to differentiate your level of engagement (which increases performance and joy) from your level of attachment (which leads to anxiety, fear and overwhelm) and become aware of how you are currently approaching your work and the impact that approach is having on your well being.
Week Two will give you strategies for decreasing your level of attachment, allowing you to dismantle the parking brake that keeps you from engaging and adds stress and pressure to everything you do.
Week Four will help you become aware of common pitfalls and strategies for avoiding them, and give you tips and tools for staying in your zone and course correcting in the case that you fall into old habits and patterns .
Each week of training will be accompanied by worksheets and journaling activities that will allow you to apply the concepts being covered to your specific challenges and opportunities. You will have the option to submit your work to me for review, which will include feedback, recommendations and additional questions to help you get the most out of each lesson. ($500 value)
Four group Q/A and coaching sessions conducted on Thursdays from 11:30am to 12:30pm MST. These sessions, designed to allow you and other participants to ask questions, share insights, and work through any difficulties may encounter, will be conducted via a conference call service, which will allow you to call in from any location. Calls will be recorded and made available for replay. ($2000 value)
The option to upgrade your participation to add two one-on-one coaching calls with me to explore in greater depth your specific challenges and how you can apply the principles, tools, and strategies taught in the course to address them. ($1,200 value)
A copy of my book, The Pinocchio Principle: Becoming a Real Leader ($16.95 value).
How much does it cost?
Basic participation costs $997 and includes four weekly training webinars (available for replay), worksheets and journaling exercises and feedback I’ll provide on what you submit, and four weekly group Q/A and coaching calls (available for replay).
Enhanced participation costs $1497 and includes basic participation as well as two one hour one on one coaching calls to be scheduled at your convenience.
What are the benefits of being in a pilot?
Enrollment will be capped at a total of 15 people. This will allow me to give you a very high level of interaction and attention so that I can determine the best way to address your specific needs with the most applicable and powerful tools and techniques.
Since I have never taught this course before, I am offering it at a significantly lower rate. While you will pay $997, I plan to ultimately roll this course out for the cost of $2,500 to $3000. This allows you to receive a great deal of value for your money.
Feedback I gather from you on what worked well and what you would like to see more of will be incorporated in training videos offered in future sessions. I will make these updated and enhanced training videos available to you at no extra charge.
What if I’m not satisfied?
If after the second week of the course you feel you are not receiving incredible value for your time and money, I will refund the full amount of your tuition.
